solana-install tool can be used to easily install and upgrade the validator
software on Linux x86_64 and mac OS systems.
$ curl -sSf https://raw.githubusercontent.com/solana-labs/solana/v0.18.0/install/solana-install-init.sh | sh -s
Alternatively build the
solana-install program from source and run the
following command to obtain the same result:
$ solana-install init
After a successful install,
solana-install update may be used to easily update the cluster
software to a newer version at any time.
If you would rather not use
solana-install to manage the install, you can manually download and install the binaries.
Download the binaries by navigating to https://github.com/solana-labs/solana/releases/latest, download solana-release-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu.tar.bz2, then extract the archive:
$ tar jxf solana-release-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu.tar.bz2 $ cd solana-release/ $ export PATH=$PWD/bin:$PATH
Download the binaries by navigating to https://github.com/solana-labs/solana/releases/latest, download solana-release-x86_64-apple-darwin.tar.bz2, then extract the archive:
$ tar jxf solana-release-x86_64-apple-darwin.tar.bz2 $ cd solana-release/ $ export PATH=$PWD/bin:$PATH
If you are unable to use the prebuilt binaries or prefer to build it yourself from source, navigate to https://github.com/solana-labs/solana/releases/latest, and download the Source Code archive. Extract the code and build the binaries with:
$ ./scripts/cargo-install-all.sh . $ export PATH=$PWD/bin:$PATH
If building for CUDA (Linux only), fetch the perf-libs first then include the
cuda feature flag when building:
$ ./fetch-perf-libs.sh $ source target/perf-libs/env.sh $ ./scripts/cargo-install-all.sh . cuda $ export PATH=$PWD/bin:$PATH
